RAMPTECH Air Start Couplings
RAMPTECH® Air Start Coupler
Sage P/N 801103
CONSIDER THE BAR RAISED
RAMPTECH® Air Start Coupler elevates quality to an unmatched level, making it the best choice for functionality and durability. The dual handle connects and disconnects rapidly from the aircraft, boosting operational efficiency. What’s more, the self-locking design provides visual positive engagement with the aircraft nipple – a red band around the coupler indicates if not properly engaged – further enhancing productivity while reducing training requirements.
Other outstanding features include less pressure drop through the coupler (at 180 ppm the pressure drop is 1 PSI less than the Kaiser/Rockwell Collins coupler). The integrated non-return valve prevents whiplash from the jet starter hose and scuffing during coupler removal, and elastomer protection prevents damage caused by ground contact. Furthermore, a special locking system with 8-quick coupler balls securely engages the aircraft nipple to maintain a positive ASU-aircraft connection.

HOSE ATTACHMENT PROCEDURE
To ensure proper and safe operation please follow these hose attachment procedures. Improper hose to coupler assembly could result in injury under normal operating pressure.
Hose and scuff cover appearance may vary from brand to brand. However, the basic process remains the same. Use the first clamp (STBC400Z) to secure the hose to the fitting only. Use the second clamp (STBC425Z) to secure the scuff cover to the hose.
